This New Arlo Skye Carry-On Bag Is Sleek AF
Audi lends some of its sportiness to one of our favorite pieces of luggage.
After launching late last year, Arlo Skye—a luggage collaboration from former Louis Vuitton and Tumi execs—declared that its new carry-on was "the perfect piece for the design-obsessed traveler." It's a bold statement at a time when Raden is rolling out multicolored, high-tech hard-shells and Away (born of Warby Parker alums) boasts sleek, flexible polycarbonate bags that will charge your iPhone—but, wouldn't you know it, Arlo came through.
The Arlo Skye Carry-On, which we've been loving since last May, is made with a lightweight aluminum-magnesium alloy and has a built-in portable charger that easily slips in and out of the suitcase, perfect for a quick charge at the airport or as an extra battery pack to to take with you on the go. It comes in three chic (yet cheekily named) colors—Penguin black, Sardine silver, and Champagne. And just recently, the company added a fourth option, made in collaboration with German car manufacturer Audi. The Arlo Skye x Audi Carry-On was previously only available to Audi owners through the Audi Premier Benefits program—no longer.
This time around, the Carry-On gets a sleek low-gloss black finish with handles and a name tag in full-grain Italian leather sourced from Florence. In a nod to the high-performance badging on their S & RS or Rennsport (German for "racing sport") vehicles, the suitcase features stitching in Audi’s signature red. Intelligent design combined with sporty styling? Sounds like a major win.
The Arlo Skye x Audi Carry-On is now available at arloskye.com from $550.
